Stepping down as pastor requires preparation. And
prayer. And patience. For a lifelong pastor, Bryant
Wright, the art of the succession plan could not be
more important–or more difficult.

In his book, Succession, Bryant shares the process
of his final six years as pastor, from his first
thoughts about passing on the role to preaching his
final sermon. But he also passes on something
more, practical advice for churches and pastors
developing their own plans and biblical examples of
successful succession.
